What was the invasion and occupation of Iraq but an act of terrorism?
Everyone now knows that the faux war was born of a fraud. The
deception had no legitimate purpose except to terrorize countries that
(a) produce oil, (b) harbour Al-Qaeda or (c) threaten Israel.
Even the invasion of Afghanistan, considered a legitimate response to
9/11, could have been avoided. The Taliban appropriately asked the US
to provide evidence of Osama bin Laden's complicity in the 9/11 affair
before deporting him.
Instead, we attacked Afghanistan to the cheers of terrorizing
avengers. "We'll show you what we do to those who terrorize America!"
was the mantra. The USA is still terrorizing Afghanistan, thereby
increasing Al-Qaeda cells.
The icing on the spread-fear cake has involved the USA terrorizing
Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. Not only are the countries America
bombs terrorized. Every other country that might disobey our commands
is threatened and made to fear for its existence.
Human life outside America and its stooges isn't worth a tinker's damn
to terrorist America. Some 567,000 Iraqi children under the age of
five died from American sanctions on Iraq. On 60 minutes in 1996,
Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said: "We think the price is
As of January 2010 and since the invasion and occupation of Iraq in
2003, 1,366,350 Iraqi lives have been lost to terrorist slaughterers.
"Never mind," you say? "The price is worth it. Beside, they're only
Muslims who want to multiply and take over the world."
Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib, Bagram and rendition programmes have been
nothing but terrorizing to plant fear in the hearts and minds of any
Arab or Muslim with negative feelings toward America.
According to Chris Hedges, "An Arab American, Syed Fahad Hashmi, made
provocative statements, including calling America "the biggest
terrorist in the world". That led to his arrest and prosecution on
trumped up charges, in much the same way that Professor Sami al-Aryan
lost his job and freedom for being an outspoken critic of US and
Hedges relates the terrorizing effect of these prosecutions even of
American citizens. "The state," he says, "can detain and prosecute
people not for what they have done, or even for what they are planning
to do, but for holding religious or political beliefs that the state
deems seditious. The first of those targeted have been observant
Muslims, but they will not be the last.
Chris Floyd points to incidents in countless towns and villages across
America's terror war fronts in Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia and Yemen
where a multitude of grieving, angry Iraqis are further embittered
against the American occupation by America's terrorist killings.
"You want to stop the 'radicalization' of young Muslims? Chris asks.
"It's simple: stop killing innocent Muslims in wars of domination all
over the world. Stop running 'covert ops' in every nation of the world
(as Obama's 'special envoy' Richard Holbrooke admitted last week) -
murders, kidnappings, corruption and deception that make a howling
mockery of the very 'civilized values' these wars and ops purport to
If America wants to stop terrorism, it needs to stop terrorizing the
